The captivating wildness outside is matched with en-suite, Meru-style luxury tents that blend into the natural setting and feature private decks as well as indoor and outdoor showers. In the main lodge, cool off in the pool, relax by the open campfire, enjoy a drink in the pub or savor a delicious meal in the thatched dining area?all with superb views across the floodplain. When the day is done, retire to the comfort of your tastefully designed tent or, better yet, enjoy a singular experience: sleeping outside on a raised platform, a glittering starscape above you, with the sounds of the African night as a lullaby.

Guests can relax in their room and simply soak in the beautiful views across the vast and game-filled floodplain.

No matter which way you choose to explore, the landscape ripples with wildlife: lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, buffalo and elephant, as well as good concentrations of zebra, wildebeest, giraffe and many more.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included

As you explore the marshes, lagoons and grasslands here, the landscape comes alive with a spectacular diversity of animals, including lion, leopard, spotted hyena, the rare wild dog and, of course, the massive herds of elephant for which the region is known. There are many ways to discover the fauna here: on day and night game drives, the latter a unique and exciting insight into the lives of nocturnal species, or perhaps floating quietly through the reed-fringed channels in a traditional dugout canoe (water levels permitting). Nature walks take you through the Linyanti River and Savute Channel, and there are a number of platforms and well placed hides to surreptitiously snap photos of animals, it is an exciting immersion into a wild world. The camp itself is nestled under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, raised off the ground to overlook a large hippo-filled lagoon. The ten spacious tents are ideally situated to take advantage of the dramatic river views, and include classic safari touches: under thatch with canvas walls, outdoor showers (there?s nothing quite like a shower under the stars!) and en-suite bathroom facilities.
